On-demand transport platform Bolt has today opened applications for its 2023 Women in Tech internship program.
Now in its third year, the program is aimed at empowering young women by providing opportunities to start their careers in tech.
This year’s program is dubbed The Bolt Outternship’ and is set to run for three months from July, 2023.
The Women in Tech program was launched in 2021 by Bolt with the aim of empowering young women who are interested in undertaking careers in the tech field. The program is designed to train, mentor and empower young women by offering placements across various departments including Operations, Engineering, Public Policy, PR and Marketing. The young women will also be paired with women in Bolt leadership, to mentor and guide them as they go through the 3 months program.
“We are excited to be launching the third edition of our internship program that is geared towards empowering young women to take up space and grow their careers in the tech world. We are confident that the internship program will provide young women with valuable work experience and accelerate their career growth. Given the tech industry’s historical male dominance, we strongly believe that increased representation of women in tech will promote a more inclusive, diverse, and progressive society.” Bolt’s Country Manager, Linda Ndungu, said.
This year’s internship program will kick off in May with the application process and will avail 20 slots for women in Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, and South Africa to gain valuable skills in Operations, Public Policy, Account Management, PR, and Marketing. The 3 months paid internship will run from July to September 2023.
